Ida Bunting Semi Finals Monday 8th August 2022 Ballards Gore Golf Club
Match 1 teed off at 1pm. Andrea Clark playing handicap 20 from Belfairs v Ruth Collins playing handicap 22 from Three Rivers
Ruth won the first 2 holes but Andrea quickly fought back squaring the match on the 4th. Ruth continued to play well paring the next 4 holes, judging the distance & putting well despite the hard conditions and was 3 up at the 10th. Andrea fought back to be 1 down on the 14th, the 15th was halved but Ruth pared the 16th to be 2 up and closed out the match on the 17th winning 2 and 1.
Match 2 teed off at 1.08pm. Hi Barbara Kim Highfield, playing handicap 22 from The Warren v Carole Lewis playing handicap 20 from Five Lakes
This game was evenly matched with both girls hitting great shots, although stopping the ball on the greens proved difficult. Kim initially pulled ahead going 2 up after 5 holes, however, Carole pulled the match back to all square by the 7th hole. Both players played some lovely golf, but the short game proved difficult to judge. By hole 13, a shot hole for Kim, with both on the green for 3, Kim holed her putt to go 3 up. The next 3 holes were then halved with Kim coming out the winner on hole 16, 3 and 2.
Both matches were played in a good spirit in difficult conditions. Our thanks go to the caddies and Sandra Goff for referring. My thanks also to Ballards Gore Golf Club for hosting the matches and to the caterers for the sandwiches & drinks prior to the match.
